Building and Construction Specialists who are Committed to Quality and Excellence

We don’t just excel in design, we also excel in construction and building. The reason we are renowned for quality comes down to our commitment and the value we put on getting your home built right from the start all the way to when we complete maintenance after you have moved in.

Marco, Construction Starts Manager - Ventura Homes

Marco, Construction Starts Manager

A happy home starts with the foundations

Marco leads our Starts Department which is responsible for the preparation and planning of the works required to get the foundations and concrete slabs completed. Marco and his team are committed to ensuring our homes are built to the highest standard and that starts with the slab.

With most other building companies, the building supervisor is responsible for seeing the slab being poured whilst also overseeing the construction of many homes – they are busy and juggling lots of projects. Not at Ventura. The Starts team are dedicated to the foundations work and once this stage is completed and they are happy with the quality they hand the construction over to the supervisor.

Marco has over four decades of experience in the building industry and is very proud to work for Ventura Homes. “I want to see our clients in 10 to 20 years’ time and I will be proud to talk to them about their Ventura home and the quality work we have delivered.”

Allen is heavily involved within the industry, having written a white paper on the R Codes for VHG, has been consulted on R-code reform in recent years, including the new Medium Density Codes. A member of the HIA’s Environment, Planning and Development committee Allen is called upon for advice regarding local planning policies and other issues that affect builders and developers alike.
